DMA operates as a school within a school, in the Digital Media Academy students travel together in core content classes that are heavily embedded with technology in a college preparatory curriculum. DMA offers courses in Contemporary Media, Digitech(Adobe), Digital Photography, Film Production & Broadcasting, English, History, and Science. DMA students are given the opportunity to gain experience with community and industry partnerships
through class projects, and on-site/off-sites internships. DMA has established partnerships with local businesses and organizations for students to connect with mentors and gain field experience. Currently, students may apply to the Academy during the Spring of their 8th grade year, and if accepted, they travel with other DMA students through four academic courses and can take Summer workforce readiness courses and apply for an internship their Senior year. Students begin their journey in the elective Contemporary Media course their freshman year, and Digitech 1 elective during their sophomore year. The sophomore course is a survey course that gives students an idea of what to expect in the following two years. This is so they are well prepared to choose a focus when they move on to their upper grade level courses. Junior year students take their concentrator course, and senior year
they take their completer course along with their possible internship. The three strands consist of Film & Broadcasting, Graphic Design, and Photography. Most Academy teachers have common preparatory periods in which they share curriculum ideas, monitor student academic progress, and plan activities for the year. By senior year, our students are expected to have a clear plan for what major they would like to pursue and what college will best accommodate
their career goals.
